Perspectives from HR Executives on Computer Based Training: An Examination into its Uses and Effectiveness based on organizational Size.
Seven hundred and twenty-one HR executives from small, medium, and large organizations were surveyed for their opinions about computer-based training (CBT) from software, pedagogy, and cost effectiveness perspectives. The results show that as organizations get larger they generally use more software applications and pedagogy elements. However, regardless of organizational size, most do not use software attributes of adaptability, artificial intelligence, and game application. Further, the pedagogy attributes of just-in-time learning, pretesting/post testing, and synchronous delivery are not used by most organizations. Organizations from all three sizes believed that their CBT was a cost-effective tool for delivering their training programs and produced effective learning within the organization.
